too much, borrows too much, and taxes too much. it reflects says america's priorities to create jobs, strengthen the middle class, and build an economy that creates opportunity for all. went to theell floor yesterday and talked about the president's budget proposal. he said it is not a serious document. [video clip] >> it will probably never past the democratic led senate. in some sense, that is the point. rather than put together a constructive blueprint both parties could use to get the economy moving, the president is opting for the political stunt for a budget that is more about andng up the base in election-year. it would increase taxes by over $1 trillion in the worst economic slowdown anyone can remember. it would explode spending by $790 billion, forcing us to borrow more money. it would do almost nothing to threatsthe serious facing our children's futures and does not come close to balancing this year. mitch mcconnell talking about the 2015 budget proposal. congress will take up budget proposals and will decide what gets spent. "the washington post" tweeted this -- it would
at the president's budget, you see an earned income tax credit. that is being offered by the president as something that should be expanded. if you look at the poverty report monday, he praises the earned income tax credit. republicans have different views. use all marco rubio in the senate talk about killing the program. marco rubio in the senate talking about killing the program. the earned income tax credit, which the president wants to expand, was really a republican proposal a few decades ago. republicans like having people work and having people reported for work. this could be an area where there are twin carried -- tinkering. expand the like to tax reduction for families who have children. republicans have been focusing on this for the past year. mike lee, one of the most conservative members has been talking about using the tax credit as the core of what republicans have. see at least two areas there could be talks. credits, we are seeing political messaging more than anything else. host: what are the expectations for how the budget process is going to work on capitol hill? will the senate
a compromise that included spending cuts in exchange for tax revenue. unfortunately, his compromise and the other compromise discussed did not make it through. the committee, in a sense, failed to come to conclusion to propose to the senate and the house a compromise that could be lived. .. >> i want to welcome the senator from pennsylvania senator to me. >> toomey. >> excuse my voice it sounds worse than it is. think you for having me today and for his kind introduction and from universal health services it was allen's idea that i'd be invited to speak with you this morning and i appreciate that but i was a little surprised to be honest because allen knows about my notorious weaknesses with the public speaker and invited me any way. i say notorious for meet -- for be the department of public speaking made clear by only a smile -- of small child. i have three little kids into are not so little but my eldest is a little girl when she was in the second to parade the school had a program where you are invited to come into the class to explain what you do for a living. i stood up in fro
spent over $1.5 trillion which averages out to about $11.2 million tax dollars paid every hour by the american people. in today's national paper, the "usa today," and other headlines, the headline is this, "obama to karzai: time running out for security deal." madam speaker, based on recent polls this would be good news to the american people if we would not continue this relationship with afghanistan. it is nothing but an absolute waste of the taxpayers' money and the american people are sick and tired of it. a recent poll last week by gallup showed that almost 50% of the american people believe that the war in afghanistan was a mistake to start with. i can honestly say this. if it was not a mistake to start with, it's a mistake now that we continue to support and spend money on a corrupt leader named karzai. mr. speaker -- madam speaker, as i listen to the secretary of defense, chuck hagel, yesterday talk about the financial pressure on our military and the budget that he will be supporting that mr. obama has proposed, i wonder why we in congress are not allowed to debate on
for the tax rates to pay for that. most definitely. caller: our roads are awful. we have a lot of state roads. repair work would really help. where else do you see jobs available besides infrastructure spending? where else do you think the government can help create jobs? caller: i think in the technology,system, private sector. help bringons would about income to a level of being able to take care of your family, cover your living expenses. if that was not for unions, we would not be able to watch you on television right now. so they can rip off citizens and keep low wages and make big profits. thank you. calling in from philadelphia, pennsylvania. fish and sam says the president's budget should be how not to spend others money. also, dean writes in, too bad the gop will kill his budget. are they totally heartless? commentspage, several on that. allen writes in on her thoughts on the president's budget plan. she says stop messing around with other people's lives. we will continue to bring you comments. we want to hear you on the phone. the phone lines are open. ruben in philly on the line fo
of both parties, tax reform. the republican version will be officially unveiled tomorrow by the chairman of the house ways and means committee, but the leaders of both parties in the senate held out no hope for getting tax reform done this year. joining me now is msnbc policy analyst ezra klein and david corn, washington bureau chief for mother jones. it looked to me like john boehner had exactly one thing on his mind when he left the white house. i've got to go out on the house floor and prove to my fellow republicans that i am still one of them, even though i was in the room with that guy for about an hour. >> i thought you were going to say golf. i'm glad the guys are talking, but i think we've come to really complete paralysis here in washington. and not surprisingly, i kblam the republicans for much of that. whether it's immigration reform, tax reform, here's some of the things of substance. both parties now are figuring out what to do in terms of having something to talk about for the midterm elections this coming november. there is not a single legislative policy check that boehne
: this rallies the base and expands college access and education for young, poor kids and expanding tax cuts for those in poverty and similar measures the democrats ran on and appreciate. it is a policy document used as a tool for 2015-2016 the final years of the obama presidency. we wants to get something done before leaving. he is figure out a policy plan for the final two years. >> host: is it realistic this plan can get through congress? >> guest: no, i don't think anyone expects the entire budget will pass. i don't think that is that has ever happened. but some things might have opportunity for bipartisan compromise. the business tax code reform would generate revenue to build bridges and roads and generate jobs and that is similar to a proposal that dave camp, the chairman of the house released last week. so ideas in the budget could be ground for compromise. >> host: does he indicate where he is going to act alone? >> guest: there is not so much of that. the president has a robust executive action plan he is implementing and he is taking action and has many more this year. the whiteho
-class including expansion of the air and income tax credit for workers without children and in addition to the immediate steps the president has set out of range of ideas to invest in education and quick workers for the skills they will need for years to come, measures that help us grow and help ensure that that growth is widely shared. so in conclusion, i would say that the challenges we face are substantial. we continue to have some of the short run challenges, but the bigger ones are the ones that have been building up over the last decade, the slower productivity growth in the postwar years and the increase in inequality. a lot is in place to have more stability and certainty. i think that by itself will be a major help to the economy, but they're is a lot more the weekend should do. i would describe some of that ambitious agenda in my remarks here today and would be happy to discuss more of it in answer to any questions you may have.

conservative groups that were seeking tax-exempt status to heighten scrutiny. delaying these groups' applications suggests an effort to chill the constitutional right of speech and association by groups that hold conservative views. the details that have emerged are trouble alarming. the i.r.s. has admitted that it deliberately targeted conservative groups' applications for tax-exempt status for extra review if they included such words as "tea party," "patriots," "912" in their names. or if they criticized how this country is being run. or if their purpose were to address government spending, government debt, taxes, or simply to make america a better place. incredible, mr. president. these inappropriate criteria stayed in place for more than 18 months and resulted in substantial delays in processing the applications of many different groups. in some cases, the applications remained outstanding for more than two years. the i.r.s. also sought to compel some of the targeted groups to divulge their membership lists. i.r.s. officials have subsequently admitted that there was absolutely n
country and want nothing more than to pay taxes and contribute to make america better, one of my republican colleagues compared dreamers with drug mules. with disparaging remarks about the size of their calves. and he continues to refuse to apologize for his hateful comments. these kinds of deplorable, intolerant remarks are dividing our country but they should not divide this chamber. they should not prevent a commonsense bill from coming forward. house republicans need to reject the offensive and unproductive rhetoric of some of their members and finally show real leadership on immigration reform . that majorities of republican voters support. the only floor vote that we've even had this entire legislative session on immigration was a vote to defund the deferred action program, to defund the daca program, a vote to deport dreamers, to not allow dreamers to get right with the law and get a provegsal renewable working permit. sadly that amendment passed the house. we were able to stop it, it didn't happen, the program continues, we encourage president obama to extend the program,

of that kind of growth. one reason we're not is bigger government, more taxes, more regulation, and more debt. and we're not going to get out of it until we get off that path. so now we have a veterans bill before us. nobody, i don't believe, is more committed to veterans in this body than i've been and so many of my colleagues on both sides of the aisle want to do the right thing for veterans. but it's an audacious thing that we're seeing here today. let's review some of the history. just two months ago, every senate democrat, every senate democrat voted for a bill to cut military pensions for our soldiers. our military retirees and even our disabled veterans. it was in their bill. senate democrats then blocked not once but twice my efforts, other republican efforts to restore those cuts by closing a tax credit loophole for illegal immigrants. i see my colleague and friend, senator sanders, here. i'm going to get to the point, i'll just do it now because i know he's got a busy agenda and i think i know how the script will all play out and if i just had my glasses i might could read this bett

tax" -- end quote. americans strongly support this basic safeguard for the integrity of our elections, and it's been endorsed by liberal democrats such as president carter. not surprisingly, in crawford v. marion county, the supreme court rejected that as well. he took the position in the supreme court that a church did not have the first amendment right to hire or fire individuals who were responsible for conveying the church's message and implementing its mission. the position the nominee advocated would greatly fringe on the free exercise rights of religious institutions. the supreme court rejected his views there, too, this time 9-0. 9-0. but it is his advocacy on behalf of the nation's most notorious cop killer that most calls into question his fitness for the powerful government position he seeks. back in december of 1981, 25-year-old officer daniel faulkner was conducting a routine traffic stop when wesley cook, also known as mumia abu-jamal, shot him in the back. he then stood over officer faulkner and shot him several more times in the chest. as officer faulkner lay dying in

and did not take into account a lot of other things in the law like tax credits were businesses are eligible. the report says -- let's go back a little bit -- it did not say how much it will rise but what determines of a small business will see an increase in rates? thet: this report looked at pre-affordable care act law and projecting out. it looked at one provision that involves how insurance companies rate for risk. the law before, insurance companies exclude people with pre-existing conditions, charge sicker people higher rates. older people could be charged more. what the law has done is taken out the pre-existing condition thank and it has narrowed the ages. you can still rates a little bit higher for an older person but it narrowed that split. it has changed the way that companies can price risk. host: so the premium is what we are talking about and what factors go into determining a premium? guest: it is still age and it is smoking status. insurance companies have to take all comers. they used to be able to exclude someone. was less expensive because you had more help th
to oppose closing a single tax loophole. they've -- senate republicans oppose closing even a loophole for these oil companies or corporationcorporations that shs overseas. and this benefits the koch brothers. senate republicans have proposed asking billionaires to pay the same higher tax rate as middle-class tax families, as so illustrated by wa warren buffet. they have proposed workplace standards that might cost the koch brothers a few extra dimes, a few extra dollars, maybe. and the koch brothers are returning the favor with huge donations to republican senate candidates, either directly or indirectly. senate republicans, madam president, are addicted to koch. in fact, senate republicans hardly need the nrsc anymore, which for decade after decade was their main funding tool for the republican senate. not any longer. the koch brothers take care of that. besides, the nrsc can't hide its donors' identities, like the koch brothers' funding groups can. senate republicans call this freewheeling spending by anonymous donors nothing more than free speech -- free speech. senate republicans
